Ski Holidays in Gstaad, Switzerland

The picturesque resort of Gstaad,with its traditional style buildings surrounded by 250 kilometres of skiable terrain, is a favourite amongst the elite with celebrities gracing the slopes and filling the gourmet restaurants in the evenings. However the less-affluent skier can still enjoy the resort with a stay in a good value apartment.

The car-free resort is perfect for an early-evening wander, with window-shopping at the designer shops before enjoying a coffee at Michel’s Stallbeizli. The village is traditional in style with charming alpine chalets, and the surrounding mountain scenery is stunning.
